Impact Uden - 1690 battle

On the 26th of may, a wargames show, called IMPACT, was organised for the second time by the local club "Hired Guns. Although ït wasn't a big show, it was nice, had a friendly sphere and we promised to show up next year, which in fact says it all.
Fome pictures of the show itself, goto http://pijlieblog.blogspot.nl/2013/05/impact-2013-pictorial-report.html

At the wargames show we presented a 1690 demo between the forces of the Dutch Republic and the French of the Sun King, Louis XIV.
Figures in 25/28mm, rules of course Beneath the Lily Banners.
